MDCEs' accident: Mion DCE discharged; Zabzugu DCE still in ICU

The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Mion, Mr Mohammed Hashim Abdallah, one of the four Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs) who were involved in a ghastly accident on Monday, 24 June 2019, has been discharged from the hospital.

The Dean of the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Northern Region was taken home on Thursday, 27 June 2018.

Earlier in the week, two of his colleagues, the Municipal Chief Executives for Gushegu, Musah Issah; and Nanumba North (Bimbila), Abdulai Yakubu, were discharged by Dr Godfred Takyi, head of the accident and emergency department of the Tamale Teaching Hospital.

The three are expected to go for reviews at different times.

But the District Chief Executive for Zabzugu, Mr Ahmed Abukari Iddrisu, is still at the Intensive Care Unit responding to treatment.

Class 91.3FM's Northern Bureau Chief, Mohammed Gadafi, visited the hospital and gathered that the patient suffered multiple injuries in the face and chest.

Despite the seriousness of his wounds, Mr Iddrisu is conscious, alert and mobile.

About eight specialists at the Tamale Teaching Hospital are attending to him. He is currently undergoing several therapies but the specialists declined to give specific details about the situation due to confidentiality concerns.

Meanwhile, Mr Zakaria Karim, the driver of the Mercedes Benz saloon car that crashed with the SUV in which the four government officials were travelling on, was buried on Wednesday in line with Islamic tradition. He died on Monday.
